Fun track. No frills

Played here many times. Good track with nice and wide fairways to bomb it. 2 green has been in need of help for a long time but the rest are generally nice and smooth. Fairways are pretty good with your typical kikuyu grass. On 10 take driver and aim for the left or right rough. Everything in the middle will roll all the way back to the flat. Also anything short on your second will roll back 50 yards.

Always enjoy this course

Course is in very good condition and we moved along just fine... just like always here. I don't think I've ever had a bad experience here. I really like the layout... challenging, but fair. A reliable course in our regular rotation.

Becoming worst managed course in LA City

I've played this course 3 times within the last month. Last weekend used a hotdeal t time for 12:24. T off 45 minutes late. All other days I played previous were also very late, anywhere from 20 minutes to the 45 minute this past weekend. Groups had no concept of their slow play, putting and marking 6 inches from the hole. Groups playing from the black that should be playing from the whites. By the 10th hole, after 2 hrs and 45 minutes to play 9 holes, it got even slower. Barely finished in with minimum light around 6 pm. Used to be a favorite, now this course goes to the bottom of my list. I thought Los Verdes was the worst, this course is becoming the new Los Verdes.

Good, solid course for the money

Course was in good shape and played pretty true. If you haven't played Hansen in several years, they've flipped the front and back nines. The new #18 (old #9) is a difficult finishing hole.

This was regular price for the course and the cart. The staff did not recognize it as such and wanted to charge extra to ride. They called the manager and he basically told them that they needed to pay closer attention. So we paid the GolfNow price. But the staff said they've been having problems with GolfNow. So if you get a discounted rate with GolfNow, you may find they want to charge you more once you get there.

Round lasted about five hours, which I would expect on a Sunday. Course was in good shape, especially compared to other public courses in the Valley.

Where's that dam?

Greens tricky, difficult to read for a first timer. I'll go back and do better next time. As an LA Senior cardholder I could have gotten a better deal by calling the course directly.

No value when you book a round and only play 13 holes

Our t time was 12:24 but the course did not get us out till 12:55. The play was very slow and we only got 13 holes play by dark at 4:45pm. There was no marshal to oversee the slow play. This was a poor value and the course should have given our twosome a replay coupon. We paid for a 2 rounds and did not even get close to completing.. Can golf now help rectify this???

Enjoy the course but horrible pace of play

I've played this course a handful of times and I usually try to play during the middle of the week, by myself, in a cart to get in 18. I played on a Wednesday, my tee time was 12:24pm. Got there about 15 minutes early, they said they were running 20 minutes behind. They didn't call my number to tee off until 1pm. And you could see that the second hole was stacked 3 groups deep already on the tee box. I was joined by a group of 3 guys, incredibly nice. The staff was very nice as well, although I only saw them at the clubhouse. It took us 3 hours to play 9 holes because everyone hole, every shot we were waiting. We had to quit after hole 15 because you just couldn't see the ball anymore since the sun had gone down.

I do enjoy playing this course, it's got the distance I need to practice on with tee markers over 6300 yards. There is enough danger to keep you on your toes. The greens were a little wonky. They were bumpy and inconsistent in speed but it is winter so I wasn't too concerned with it. I will definitely play this course again but hopefully next time the course is empty because it was tough to sit and wait that long on pace of play problems all the way through the course.

tricky greens

played 11/15/15, Sunday, 8:00 am, took a little over 4 hrs to play. looked like it got slower later on,backup on some tee boxes. course was in good shape considering the drought(they use recycled water). Pretty wide open course, tricky greens. have to remember you are on a side of a foothill most of the round. Greens were deceivingly quick. My favorite muni when I go out there.

Good course but so slow

This is a good course, wide and well-maintained. It is not tough course, I broke my personal best score!

On the other hand, there were lots of Korean players playing too slow. I booked 11:54 tee time but I teed off 20 minutes later. I also broke my personal longest playing time 6 hours!!

Longest round ever!!!

Not worth the wait. Unfortunately had turned into a Wilson /Harding course. Lot of slow players. The starter sends out way too many groups and course stays backed up entire play. 6-7 hour round on a Sat. Worst experience ever. Used to be one of my fav public courses but will never go back.

Fun course, pretty generous fairways. The fairways are in good shape, nice green and lush. The greens are in good shape, although they are on the slow side.

Fun L A City Course

Overall the course is fun to play. Well run at check in and 1st tee. Friendly people. The course is in good condition on the tee and fairways. The greens need a good roll as they were bumpy.
